points out in panama, 1989, iraq, 1990, serbia, 1998, afghanistan, 2001 and iraq, 2003, washington tried sanctions pressure and the threat of force to get leaders to change course, it didn't work. and washington had to make good on its threat to go to war. with north korea, coercive diplomacy also failed, but in this case, washington decided against military action choosing, instead, to contain the regime. making coercive diplomacy requires a mix of threats and promises. with regard to iran, the administration has made the threats plenty of times. with clarity and credibility. but while the sticks have been handled shrewdly, the carrots have not. the united states is unable to define for itself or for the world what would be an acceptable deal and, most importantly, what it is willing to do if ta ron agrees to such a deal? would sanctions be lifted? which ones? would the u.s. stop its efforts to overthrow the regime? would it be willing to discuss normalization of relations with iran? there have been many obstacles in the path of a deal from the iranian side. but a former state departmen

have a stalemate in macedonia over the name issue we have the serbia-kosovo dialogue that's not been pleated, we still have those countries that aspear to ascend ancy into the e.u. i would just urge you that further progress in that area is going to continue to require american leadership. i hope that we will continue to work in the region to ensure that they continue to make progress. >> we will, senator. i just want to thank you for your leadership of the european affairs subcommittee you've done a tremendous job working on it and i look forward to working with you. >> senator kerry, i appreciate your thoughtful opening statement and your thoughtful response to these questions. i have a great deal of respect for your global experience, your depth of knowledge in these areas. i would have enjoyed working with you as a member of the committee and i'm going to enjoy working with you as secretary of state. as you said, these are complex issues and these are dangerous times. i certainly grew up hoping that that maxim of politics ends at the water's edge was actually true. i'm not sure i
, and in serbia, dried oak branches are ceremonially burned as part of a holiday tradition. and in germany, a giraffe inspects visitors from his enclosure at the zoo. hot shots, pictures coming in from tharnd world. >> nice giraffe. >> a muziegz is doing more than singing the blues because an airline, get this, mishandled his guitar. jeanne moos shows us how he's fighting back. >> reporter: it's bad enough to lose a bag, but when you see the case of your vintage guitar shredded at the luggage pickup -- >> i let out a couple amazingly creative expletives. >> reporter: dave schneider didn't want to check his baby, red gibson es-35 from 1965. >> i begged, i tried, i told them the value. >> reporter: a little under $10,000, dave says, but delta agents in buffalo insisted he couldn't carry it on as he had always done before. when dave landed in detroit, he took out his phone and shot the guitar being transferred. >> be careful with the guitar if that's possible. >> sure. >> a friendly flight crew member even went on to the tarmac, asking the baggage handlers to be gentle, but as dave waited wit
